Goofs

Barney and his friends visit a carnival midway which is just being set up, and talk to employees. The general public isn't there yet. Suddenly there's a rainstorm which forces the group to take shelter in a tent. When the storm ends, they go back outside to find a midway packed with people...all of whom must have arrived during the storm, and all of whom are bone dry (and standing in bright sunlight).

Barney's Dumb Adventure- There's nothing great about it.
22 February 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Like the majority of you, I hate Barney and do you know what I hate more than Barney? Barney's great adventure, it's like stepping in dog turd- disgusting and horrifying. I saw this movie when I was younger and liked the purple menace. I loved it, now that I look back to that. I realized something, I hated every moment of it. So here is my review of the dumb dinosaur's great adventure:

Plot: The plot is simple- Barney comes to life, He and some kids find an egg, They go all around the world using their Imaginations and unfortunately. They brought along Barney's friends- BJ and his little sister, Baby Bop. The plot is (other than that) Non existent and has over 70 minutes of general stupidity. My score-1.5/10.

Cast: The cast does earn some respect, some being well known while others are new. They do an average job but in the end, they fail big time. My score-4/10

SFX: It has come to this, the saving grace of the movie- the effects. Which are surprisingly, the same as the show itself. I mean come on man! They had $15,000,000 and they still had to resort to the show's SFX for Barney. That my friends is lame. My score- 0.5/10

Overall, the Plot sucks and the FX suck worse. The cast is good but even they couldn't save this Bombshell of a bomb. And whoever rates this movie a ten must be either out of their mind or high on drugs. My overall score for this piece of crap movie-1/10

Another review from Phil MacRae- Kicking Barney's butt up and down the street since I was five.
